Within the next few days, we should be at a point where it's time to make

for the textbook.

We've already got a SVN server set up at TOS.org.  Currently, the only 
repo is this one:


For this repo, we'll be putting a username and password in the book 
itself -- because it's essentially a scratch space, and we don't mind if 
students screw it all up.  We can revert to previous versions if need be; 
that's kinda the point.

For the book itself, however, we want to be a bit more cicumspect. 
Chris, would it be possible in the next few days to set up another repo, 
with access restricted to a set author list?  Like maybe:



Educational materials should be high-quality, collaborative, and free.
